I have a lovely son who is 9 whose school life in particular is getting worse. He doesn't respond well to some people and will argue back but he does feel that some teachers/teaching assistants don't like him and he doesn't respond well back to them. He does play well with others but in small numbers and shows off and is silly with large groups. The school have been very good to a point - his teacher last year did not like him and could not manage him and made it very obvious but this year he has an excellent one who understands him and "see him" but he has such a negative stigma at that school now that I feel that label of causing trouble is going to stay with him. He has been blamed for things that transpire were nothing to do with him but other kids feel it easy to say it was him because people believe it!!!! There is one mum in particular who goes into school everytime her son so much as complains about mine and she has her own little "harem" of mums at school who know all think my child is the "devil". I am very keen now to move school and give him a clean start and break away from it all as the school are working well but are now singling him out more and more - going in a separate entrance in the morning and seating reading with the teacher before class etc. which is making him feel different. They have now instructed that he does not walk to school or home (which he has been doing on occasion) but his friends say nothing happens on the way home and back!!!
He really is a little love and he is always so affectionate with me. He doesn't get on with his older brother at all and there is a lot of fighting not necessarily physical but constant bits and pieces. His dad is very hard on him too which he doesn't alwasy respond too.
He doesn't have much concentration span and does fidget a lot.
It is now having a negative effect on me as I am not sleeping and am feeling low all the time as just want people to see him as I see him and people who know him well that he isn't the child they think they know.
Am I doing the right thing in moving him - he seems quite keen on the idea now as I have told him he will still play with his old friends at home?? HELP end of teather
